Assembly time estimation is an important aspect of mechanical design and is important for many users throughout the life-cycle of a product. Many of the current assembly time estimation tools require information which is not available until the product is in the production phase. Furthermore, these tools often require subjective inputs which limit the degree of automation provided by the method. The assembly of a vehicle depends on information about the product and information describing the process. The research presented in this paper explains the development and testing of an assembly time estimation method that uses process language as the input for the analysis.
